Product development lives and dies by the phrase ‘Fast, Good, Cheap – Pick Two’. Today, as we push the bleeding edge and strive for instant improvements on tomorrow’s technology, we’ve shifted the project focus. Today, vendors live by a new adage, ‘First to Market, Convenience, Security – Pick One’.

By the end of this talk, it won’t matter if you’re in software development or IT operations, helpdesk or management, you’ll be able to sit down and determine if you’re moving toward or avoiding the pitfalls that will ultimately decrease security for your consumers and your enterprise.
